Re: [Haskell-cafe] Display an inferred type during compilation

2013-04-28 Thread Corentin Dupont
Thanks all for your solutions!
Here is a summary:

- floating a value to the top level; then with -Wall GHC will give the type
since we didn't give a value,
- adding :: () to the value to check, GHC will complain equally,
- using TemplateHaskell (hereunder),
- waiting for the release of the next GHC with TypeHoles.

 Hi Cafe,
 can I ask the compiler to display the type of an inferred value during
 compile time?
 It would be great if I can output a string during compilation with the
 type.
 A little bit like running :type in GHCi, but without GHCi... Because
 running GHCi is sometime painful (I have to clean my code first).

 I'm thinking of something like:

 main :: IO ()
 main = do
a - someCode
displayTypeAtCompileTime a
return ()

 $ ghc -c test.hs
 test.hs:4:3: your type is: Foo

 Thanks,

 Hi.



 What about TemplateHaskell? Smth like:



 {-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell #-}

 module DisplayType where



 import Language.TH



 displayTypeAtCompileTime :: Name - Q Exp

 displayTypeAtComileTime name = do

 reified - reify name

 -- inspect reified structure, see TH haddock documentation

 runIO $ putStrLn $ show theType

 [| undefined |] -- you need to return some expression; since you are not
 to use it's value, it may be even undefined, it seems.



 ###



 {-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell #-}

 module Main where

 import DisplayType



 main = do

 ...

 $displayTypeAtCompileTime 'a

 ...

You could try floating a value to the top level; then I believe -Wall
will make ghc print out the inferred type since you didn't give a type
signature.
